Report: New version of Google Glass being “quietly distributed” to workplaces | Ars Technica

Glass at Work updates; a consumer version is reportedly still planned for the future

"The Wall Street Journal is reporting that Google Glass is back! Google is "quietly distributing" a new version of the wearable eyepieces "exclusively" to businesses, where the company hopes it will be received better than it was in the consumer market. The report says that Google "doesn’t plan to officially launch the new version" but hopes to have businesses using it by fall this year.

The new version reportedly has quite a few upgrades over the consumer version. For starters, the unit is finally hinged, allowing it to be folded up just like a real pair of glasses. It's got a new Intel processor, a larger, thinner display prism, improved wireless connectivity, and vertical prism adjustment, as well as horizontal. It also has an external battery back now, for all-day business use."
